How did the festival start?
We had a lot of food connections from our sister company onionring.co.uk, we love food and drink & great days out & just decided to give it a whirl & see what happened! Thankfully, the first couple were a really big success, we got the bug for running them & decided to push on and try & make them bigger and better. And that’s what we’ve been doing ever since!
How long has it been going on?
We’ve been running food and drink festivals for 6 years now at different venues all around the country!
What are highlights of this year – artisan food & producers?
We have so much going on each day through the 9 festivals this year, including the exciting Men V Food and Cake off competitions where contestants have the chance of winning a Kenwood Spiralizer. We have some of the top local chefs coming to our festivals to perform chef demos to our guests, this is great news as we’ve secured contestants from Great British Bake Off, Luis Troyano and Val Stones. We also have so many artisan producers to tempt our guests with at all festivals. These range from the tastiest cheeses and meats to refreshing spirits, ciders and wines.
